Smiling, Caring and Learning Together on a Journey with God

EYFS Home Learning

Friday 26th June

Good morning everyone and well done for engaging in your learning this week. We know it becomes even harder when the weather outside is so lovely. Please find below your final tasks for this week.

Have a great weekend.


Daily Exercise

Gymnastics activities this week – Legs

Sitting on the floor with legs flat on the floor and toes pointing to the ceiling. Turn fingers into “caterpillars” and place them on knees. Caterpillars (fingers) walk to the shins, rest there for a few seconds and then walk back to knees. Repeat to the ankles and back then try to get to the top of the toes - 'toe mountain'. Try to encourage your child to only walk their caterpillars to where they can keep their legs flat on the floor to insure the correct stretch. This will improve their flexibility if practised correctly.



There are many different moods we can feel. Take a look at the cover picture on the blog of some Mood Monster Puppet Sticks. Can you guess how each one is feeling?  We would like you to make your own mood monsters and colour them in the appropriate colours. Some common examples include…

Red – angry

Blue – sad

Yellow – happy

Purple – worried

You might think of a different colour when you have a particular feeling so please do choose other colours if you want to.



Yesterday we learnt the 'oi' sound. Can you think of any 'oi' words and write them down. Can you read them by sounding out, remembering to say 'oi' not o and i separately.

Today I would like you to put these 'oi' words into a sentence. Pick one word, can you say the sentence to your grown up? Make sure they are sitting down, and they stand up once they hear the 'oi' word. Did they remember?



Read your writing from the last 2 days, does it make sense? Do you need to change anything to make sure it makes sense? Today you will write the ending of the story. What happens at the end of the story? Re listen to the story if you are unsure. Again, make sure you say your sentence aloud. How many words are there in your sentence? Write your sentence thinking about remembering a capital letter at the beginning of the sentence, finger spaces between each word and a full stop at the end of your sentence. Can you challenge yourself to write another sentence about the end of the story? Once you have finished, you could illustrate your writing.

You could send your writing into school, we would love to read them.



You have worked hard on estimation this week. Play the game and see if you can estimate the dots. How well did you do?



There is a little bit of preparation work we need you to do for next week’s project. Could you please prepare the following…

  • Freeze a tray of ice cubes
  • Freeze a small object in a block of ice – something like Lego, small plastic animal or person would be ideal. This could be frozen in a plastic container with a lid or similar.
  • On Monday, the children will also be making puppets, so some sticks or straws could be useful.

Thank you in advance.
